Have a listen to TOY´s cover of Robert Wyatt and Mark Kramer´s “”Free Will and Testament” for Attitude is Everything, and organization working to improve deaf and disabled people’s access to live music. This week there was a powerful and thought-provoking piece on the Guardian Music blog about accessibility to music for people with hearing impairments. Written by Lee Walker it is well worth reading, and goes on to mention TOY’s captioned and subtitled gig (the first time this has happened) at the Islington Assembly Hall which took place on the 24th March.
